The Stephen King Adaption Project- Halloween special - ‘The Shining: Extended Cut’ commentary

Happy Halloween!

Or IS it? Well, it kind of depends on which member of the Torrance family you are, because if you’re Jack then you’re having an absolutely wicked time. You might say that you were having the time of your life. However, if you’re Wendy or Danny - well…not so much!

But one thing we *can* be certain of is that ALL OF WHINE AND SPACE are having an amazo time, as we sit down for a lovely Halloween treat and look back at a seminal work of horror - Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 adaptation of Stephen King’s ’The Shining’! Everyone can agree it’s an iconic addition to the horror genre, but does it deserve its esteemed reputation? Does it lose points for its loose interpretation of the source material, or does it wisely jettison excess baggage to strip a concept down to its terrifying core?

So, join us as we pedal around on our Big Wheel’s, lose our shit in our bathrobes and generally scream incoherently into the night!
